Orlando Bloom took in the most difficult way his tattoo was spelled incorrectly – people on the internet told him about it.
Recently he shared a photo of another tattoo on his arm, which was intended to be his child’s name Flynn written in Morse code.
The misstep wasn’t enormous (only one missing spot) yet it was sufficient for the actor to get the ink altered and re-posted on his Instagram.
“Finally dot it right! How do you make a mistake like that?” he wrote.
“Babe you spelled it wrong,” one follower commented on Orlando’s original Instagram post.
Another had pointed out that it actually read “Frynn” not Flynn.”
Orlando’s tattooist – Balazs Bercsenyi – corrected the work and added the name of the actor’s former dog, Sidi, which is spelled correctly.
“We added the missing dot to the Morse Code, and did a small one in memory of Sidi, his dog,” Balazs wrote on Instagram.
“Conclusion: never fully trust what your clients find on Pinterest. Life is officially back to normal.”
